Wow… thanks Tinseltoes. Those photos brought back a lot om memories. I saw a lot of films there. I remember that the auditorium was white and stark: 1960s modern!

Here is a reproduction of a Cherry Hill Mall brochure from the late 1960s. What’s interesting about this for Cinema Treasures purposes is that space #26—on the outside of the mall, next to the bank on the Route 38 side—is identified as “Mini Cinema.” (You may have to zoom the picture to see the number. It’s near the bottom left.) Does anybody remember movies being shown in that space? I don’t. I know it was a health club in the ‘70s and after, but I can’t recall what it was when the Mall opened. I suspect that the cinema was something that was planned but never opened.

My father owned the liquor store across from the movie theater until 1985. I practically lived in that theater growing up.

From Boxoffice magazine, April 1962:

CHERRY HILL, N.J.-The new Cherry Hill Cinema was to have its grand opening on Wednesday, April 11. The new 1,425-seat theater is located in the Cherry Hill Mall Shopping Center, on Route 38 at Haddonfield Road. Managing the new theater is Max Bernstein. General Drive-In Corp., operated by president Richard A. Smith, is the owner. The opening picture at the new Cinema was “The Children’s Hour”.

I remember seeing Annie here. It was very small, but, with easy access to the mall, it was a dream for any teenager. I remember the Gap being right outside the entrance. It was straight out of a John Hughes movie.

Yes, it was a General Cinema theater. The CINEMA name had a common design used for all GC owned theatres.

Was this originally a General Cinema theater???

I think the cinema was twinned in the early 1970s. The Cherry Hill Mall had a CINEMA marquee on both Rt 38 and Haddonfield Road, and they listed two movies (1 & 2) on the signs.
